Who We Are

We’re the largest community and blog for introverts in the world.

Our Mission

To let introverts everywhere know it’s okay to be who they are. You’re not broken because you’re quiet. There’s nothing wrong with you because you like spending time alone.

Meet Jenn Granneman

Hi introvert! *waves shyly*

I’m Jenn Granneman, founder of Introvert, Dear and author of The Secret Lives of Introverts. I started Introvert, Dear in 2013 as my personal blog. I was living with an extroverted roommate, dating an extroverted guy, and working an extroverted job (teaching 4th grade). I wanted to write about what it was like being an introvert living in an extrovert’s world.

In true introvert form, I wrote my blog anonymously for almost two years. I had no desire to be in the spotlight. And I had no idea my little blog would become this!

Now, with the help of “quiet ones” around the world, I’m on a mission: to let introverts everywhere know it’s okay to be who they are.

Media

Since beginning my mission, I’ve been featured in a number of places. I blog for Psychology Today; my work has appeared on HuffPost, Susan Cain’s Quiet RevolutionUpworthyThe MightyThe MuseMotherly, and a number of other outlets. I’ve also appeared on the BBC and in BuzzfeedGlamour magazine, and The Oprah Magazine. Although we’re not currently recording new episodes, I co-hosted the Introvert, Dear Podcast.

I’m available for interviews, media commentary, and other collaboration. Email me at [email protected].

Why Is It Called Introvert, Dear?

When I chose the name Introvert, Dear, I imagined a wise older woman inviting a troubled young introvert to lie down on a fancy chaise lounge in the kind of therapy session you might see in a movie. The older woman began her worldly advice by saying, “Now, introvert, dear…” Kinda weird, I know, but welcome to my brain!
